These rats are primarily active at night.
Rats can squeeze into a hole the size of a quarter.
Then the rats should be trapped and removed.
In dense populations, roof rats will establish a social hierarchy, wherein dominant males mate more than subordinate males.
They can often be seen at night running along overhead utility lines or fences.

The advantages of trapping when compared to baiting include: 1) Trapping does not require the use of harmful poisons; 2) Trapping allows the user to know whether the rat was killed, whereas with baiting the rat will wander off and die somewhere else; 3) Trapping eliminates odor problems by allowing you to dispose of the rat carcass.

Rats that are captured should be humanely destroyed and not released elsewhere because of their role in disease transmission, damage potential, and detrimental effect on native wildlife.
Roof rats entering homes are generally found in raised or secure enclosures such as walls, cabinets, attics, and false ceilings.
